    Recently celebrating its 60th anniversary, Jaeger-LeCoultre’s Memovox was the first automatic movement to feature an alarm function. The Master Memovox Boutique Edition is inspired by a Memovox model from the 1970s, and features a deep blue dial with luminescent baton hands, housed in a 40mm stainless steel case. A little triangle at the centre marks the time at which the alarm (which sounds like a softer, and less shrill version of a regular alarm clock) is set to ring.
